Watching a large quantity of anime within a short period of time is mainly self-explanatory: watch as much as possible.

Going out of one's way to understand without the need for subtitles (for example, efficiently learning the language) is basically trying to learn the language as properly as possible (learning grammar, learning the lettering/words, learning particles, adapting to the natural Japanese accent, etc.) in order to better experience what it is like to watch anime the way the Japanese do.

Appreciating both the original version and the licensed version, no matter which is superior (3+ dub/sub) is self-explanatory: you like both the English and Japanese version to at least three or more dubs.

Personally, I think my choice is going out of my way to understand without subs because it rids me of the text that blocks parts of the anime and gives me a full experience of that particular show.

My second choice would be appreciating both versions because I mainly do not care about how dubs screw anime up in anything unless it's script changes (I'm eying you, Panyo Panyo Di Gi Charat dub!).

What are your opinions?

I'm going with the third one. I enjoy dubs just as much as I enjoy the subs. Doesn't matter to me as long as I get to watch something and understand it.
